Fox News decided to follow President Donald Trump's lead by attacking prominent CNN journalist Jim Acosta for his questions to the president and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

The outlet claimed the "Trump-bashing newsman" both "hollered" at Trump and "shouted" at Kim during his "grandstanding questions."

These offending questions included such offenses as, “Mr. President, how is the meeting going so far, sir?”

There was also this vicious broadside: “Will you give up your nuclear weapons, sir?”

Acosta had a short and snark response to Fox News' ridiculous attack.

"Democracy... drink it in people," he commented in a retweet of a snarky assessment of the right-wing outlet's coverage.
